and put businesses in a further hole. president barack obama, august, 2009. he was absolutely right then. those facts hold true today. it's not just those facts hold true over a small period of time, mr. speaker. those facts hold true over a decade. john kennedy's quotes, president john f. kennedy, i just want to take you back, mr. speaker, it's not as if these are new ideas we are talking about. this isn't some rocket science problem that's suddenly been thrust upon the united states of america in 2012. these are basic economics. adam smith talked about these years ago. this is in one of john f. kennedy's news conference in 1962 as he was providing the largest tax cut in modern american history he said this, he said it's a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high and tax revenues are too low. that's where we are today, mr. speaker. tax rates are too high and tax revenues are too low. it's a paradoxical truth that can be true. he goes on. he says the soundest way to raise revenues, that's exactly what we are trying to do when we talk about balanced approach. we need to cut spending.

, hideous extremists who hate the middle class. is this what we're watching play out right now? >> what the white house learned during the first term is that there are some things that work for obama and some things that don't. sitting down at a table with john boehner as essentially equals did not turn out as well as they might have hoped with the debt ceiling talks in 2011. but what did work was that winter when the president went to the country and argued for extending the payroll tax holiday and developed pressure outside of washington, he was a lot more successful. so they have two goals here. one is to keep the pressure coming from outside the beltway and the second is to make sure that this is not a negotiation between the president and boehner, that they want the president essentially floating above this. >> robert, when we talk and i know you had a chance to hear what congresswoman black will to say about trying to find the right balance here, while a majority of americans, say they go completely support raising taxes on wealthier americans, there is also a majority support tha

a way of shamussing i will say. >> right. >> jennifer: there today's par las that i think could be illustrative. >> well, it is. i think by pretty common ascent, president obama wouldn't agree with this, but i think almost everybody else would, that he has not been the most sociable guy with members of congress. and what jefferson did when congress was in session every night more or less, he had lawmakers down to dinner. he would write his daughter saying i am about to be an unpunk tal correspondent because i am about to enter enter into the business of the session, and a big part that have was having people in the president's hughes, up close and personal. not that he thought it would create a bipartisan simpsonism, but that it would in fact help on the margins that people might be more likely to give him the benefit of the doubt if they had heard something directly from him. and contemporary evidence suggests that true. >> jennifer: apes to whoo people? >> at least neutral icize neutralize them which is a wonderful
